67 Minutes for Mandela Day

Mandela Day is an international day which celebrates Nelson Mandela’s legacy, each year on his birthday (18 July). To honour his 67-year fight for social justice, the Mandela Day campaign asks that we all take 67 minutes to help fight poverty and promote peace. Not quite sure how to get involved? Well, thanks to South AfriCAM, it’s as easy as taking a selfie while cycling.

How it works

Do you have the South AfriCAM, app? If not, you’ll need to get it. Post your cycling selfie to the app (it doesn’t have to be a riding related image, but we know it’ll be easiest for you) and brand it with one of the Mandela Day stickers, available on the app. Check below to see which stickers you need to use on the app. Once you’ve shared your sticker branded selfie, get your fans to like and comment. The more likes, comments and shares you get on your post, the more points (called JETS) you earn. Then, use these points to donate a R5, R10 or R20 money token to charity.
